Dyer Scoops ND Offer

Earlier this week, Michael Dyer found out Notre Dame was offering him a scholarship. On Thursday, his uncle confirmed things with Irish Eyes.

Weis likes to be the one to personally offer scholarships to Notre Dame recruits, and he will soon be on the phone with Michael Dyer, the nation's fourth-ranked running back according to Scout.com.

"Offer done," Andre Dyer, Michael's uncle wrote in a text message to Irish Eyes.

The Irish staff has been turned on by the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Dyer for awhile, keeping in touch with letters and emails.

Notre Dame isn't close to being the only program pursuing Dyer. The Little Rock (Ark.) Academy standout has racked up 17 scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma, Ole' Miss and Colorado.

It's easy to see why schools are falling in love with the explosive Dyer, and why Scout.com ranks him so high.

This past season, Dyer rushed for over 1,900 yards and 19 touchdowns, with most of his production having come through battling a sprained ankle. As a sophomore, a healthy Dyer ran for 2,710 yards and 28 scores.

Dyer recently told GoJackets.com that he has no college favorites. Back in January, his uncle told Irish Eyes that Notre Dame is a school he wants his nephew to see, and the younger Dyer also spoke kindly about the Irish program.

"I got some letters from the coaches and I kind of read through their programs they've sent, and I like what I've read," Dyer said. "I've watched them on TV a couple times. They're pretty good.

"I've been reading up on their tradition. I'm not that familiar with it, but I've read over a few things about it.

"This year and next year, they'll be where they're supposed to be at. I don't know if this team will be as good as Brady Quinn's bunch, but I think they'll step out and do as much as they can."

Dyer has a 3.5 GPA and wants to major in business.

Irish Eyes hopes to catch up with Dyer tonight, for more on his latest scholarship offer.
